Ode to Joy (Flashmob)

Today I had a joyous day, and I had a sad day today. 
Beethoven's Ode to Joy fits my mood, it's such an emotional pushmepullyou: it works for baptisms, it works for funerals.

Obviously it's joyous. What is it that makes it sad, though? Maybe just its beauty...

Anyway, I like this flashmob performance of it:

Ode an die Freude (Ode to Joy), Beethoven, Symphony No. 9

Thank you for posting this, Fresca. I needed to hear something joyful, see happiness.

How about Ode to Joy played with 167 portable theremins that look like Russian Matryoshka dolls? Not as uplifting as the flash mob performance, but kind of fun:

CROW: I'm glad you liked it!

EEVA: For heaven's sake! That made me laugh and shake my head. WHO THINKS OF THESE THINGS?!?! :)
